SNMP Cisco SMB Switches




I would love to know which of the data from the switch PRTG can read over public SNMP or of I need to tweak anything on the switches/PRTG:

Model Location - SNMP Location set on the swich tells me where on the address the switch is placed. Serialnumber PoE usage Firmware Verison Hardware Version Error messages - Like Fan is broken. CPU Usage Ram Usage

For metrics like CPU, RAM, Fans, and similar you can try out our SNMP Cisco System Health sensor. For metrics like the location, serial number and firmware version, we do not have any native sensors. Also, these values are usually strings so you would not be able to display them in channels. You could use the SNMP Custom String sensor in order to retrieve this data, provided you know the OIDs for these metrics.

Kind regards,
